    The peaks of the Black Cuillin are mainly composed of gabbro, a very rough black igneous rock which provides a superb grip for mountaineers, and basalt, which can be very slippery when wet.

    The summits of the Cuillin are bare rock, jagged in outline and with steep cliffs and deep cut corries and gullies.

    Twelve Black Cuillin peaks are listed as Munros, though one of them, Blaven, is part of a group of outliers separated from the main ridge by Glen Sligachan.

    Broadford Bay

    Broadford, is the second-largest settlement on Skye.

    Like many places in Skye, Broadford derives its name from Old Norse. To the Norsemen this was Breiðafjorðr - the wide bay.

    The Gaelic name is of modern derivation and assumes that the "ford" element meant a river crossing.

    Broadford was a cattle market until 1812, when Telford built the road from Portree to Kyleakin. Veterans of the Napoleonic Wars settled during the first half of the 19th century. Writing in the middle of the 19th century, Alexander Smith said, "If Portree is the London of Skye, Broadford is its Manchester.

    Legend holds that the recipe for the liqueur Drambuie was given by Bonnie Prince Charlie to Clan MacKinnon who then passed it onto James Ross late 19th century. Ross ran the Broadford Inn (now the Broadford Hotel), where he developed and improved the recipe, initially for his friends and then later to patrons. Ross then began to sell it further afield and the name was registered as a trademark in 1893.

    Coral Beach

    Skye is famous for many things, but great beaches are not high on the list. You'll find better ones on Harris, or Tiree, or Uist, or Berneray, or Iona. But there are a few wee gems on Skye, and the Coral Beach at Claigan is one of them.

    Its combination of accessibility and white sand make it a very attractive option on a warm sunny day.

    Despite its name, and all these tales of the Gulf Stream, the beach is not made of coral at all. It is actually composed of pieces of dessicated and sun-bleached algae. If you look carefully it is still possible to find some fairly big bits.

    Fairy Glen Serenity

    On the West side of Trotternish at Balnacnoc (which means - the village or township in the hills) above Uig, is the Fairy Glen – a Quirang-like landslip in miniature. The road winds around small round-topped grassy hills with lochans (ponds) in between which gives the glen an otherworldly feel.

    Skye has a long history involving the Fairys, most of which is related to Dunvegan Castle and their ‘Fairy Flag’. The Fairy Glen (much like the Fairy Pools in Glenbrittle) has no real legends or stories involving fairys that can be traced. The simple fact that the location is unusual so it has been given the nickname Fairy Glen.

    One of the hills still has its basalt topping intact which, from a distance, looks like a ruin and has been called (inexplicably) Castle Ewan. It is possible to climb to the top where there is not much room, but does have wonderful views. In the low cliff behind Castle Ewan there is a very small cave where it has been said pressing coins into cracks in the rock will bring Good Luck.

    Flora MacDonald

    Kilmuir Thatch

    There are very few old-fashioned thatched cottages to be seen today in the Highlands. A hundred years or so ago thatched houses were very much a part of the Highland scene and within their walls, by the light of the peat fire – the crofters of the Islands kept alive the songs and stories which have made the Hebrides famous throughout the world.

    Warm, sturdy and economical of scarce materials, the croft house was admirably suited to the landsacpe and the climate. It embodied the principles of streamlining hundreds of years before scientists thought of the idea, with the result that it could stand up to the worst of the winter gales.

    Lealt Falls

    Lealt is a crofting settlement on the western coastline of the Sound of Raasay on the Trotternish peninsula of Skye.  The River Lealt which gives its name to Lealt, passes through on the way to the Sound of Raasay.

    The Lealt Valley Diatomite Railway was a 2 ft (610 mm) narrow gauge which ran parallel with the River Lealt.

    The western end of the line was at Loch Cuithir, where diatomite - known locally as Cailc (Scottish Gaelic for chalk) - was extracted from the lochbed and dried on wire nets. The seaward terminus had warehouses on the cliff-top at Invertote. At the base of the cliff was a factory where the diatomite was kiln dried, ground and calcined. The line was extended from the factory onto a pier into the Sound of Raasay. During its existence, the Skye Diatomite Company extracted 2000 tons of diatomite.

    Loch Coruisk

    Loch Coruisk is an inland fresh-water loch, lying at the foot of the Black Cuillin. Loch Coruisk is reputed to be the home of a water horse.

    Sir Walter Scott visited the loch in 1814 and described it vividly:

    “Rarely human eye has known

    A scene so stern as that dread lake,

    With its dark ledge of barren stone...”

    Lord Tennyson reported more prosaically:

    “Loch Coruisk, said to be the wildest scene in the Highlands, I failed in seeing. After a fatiguing expedition over the roughest ground on a wet day we arrived at the banks of the loch, and made acquaintance with the extremest tiptoes of the hills, all else being thick wool-white fog.”

    Skye Marble

    Skye Marble has been extracted from Strath Suardal in Torrin for centuries. Marble from Torrin was used in Armadale Castle and Iona Abbey. The extracted rock was used primarily in the production of agricultural lime. Marble is mined and crushed on site, producing agricultural lime, pebbledash for housing, ready-mix concrete products and some decorative marble. A narrow gauge line, built in 1907 ran for 3½ miles from the quarry at Suardale to Broadford pier. It transported Skye Marble from the nearby village of Kilbride (Cille Bhrìghde). The railway closed in the early 20th century and the track bed remains as a public footpath. A number of old railway remains can be seen. Colour Description: Clean fresh off white

    In Gaelic, the name of this cave is Slochd Altimen or ‘nursing cave’. This refers to a 9th century princess who fell in love with a shipwrecked sailor from a different clan. Fearful of the repercussions of their liaison, the princess is said to have hidden their baby in this cave. The cave was also reported to have been visited by Sir Walter Scott in 1814 who described the cave’s cathedral like interior, covered with calcite luminous ‘spars’ in his poem ‘The Lord of the Isles’.

    Spirit of Skye

    Of all the remote, rugged and rough regions of Scotland, nothing quite matches the Isle of Skye.

    Its landscape – harsh, dramatic, stunningly beautiful and awe-inspiring – is almost other-worldly and once experienced is never forgotten. And its lochs, glens and bens, including the challenging Cuillin Mountains, are set firm in time, unchanged by all that the harshest of climates has thrown at them over the centuries. More than any other part of the British Isles, you can feel the weight of history here, the struggles and battles, the bloodshed and horror are hidden in every rock and crevice, but not very deeply.

    Here you will find ancient ruins and graves, stretching back over many centuries.

    St. Columba is much better known for his association with the island of Iona, but this was the site on which he founded the cathedral of the bishops of the Isles. This was the centre of Christianity in the Hebrides from 1079 to 1498. There are obvious ruins of two small buildings, and the outlines of others can be traced. The island is peppered with graves, ranging in age from the 11th century to the 1960s. Many of them have legible inscriptions, and a few others have plaques showing transcriptions.

    Storr Mist

    The Storr is a rocky hill on the Trotternish Peninsula.

    The hill presents a steep rocky eastern face overlooking the Sound of Raasay, contrasting with gentler grassy slopes to the west.

    The Storr is prime example of the Trotternish landslip, the longest such feature in Great Britain.

    The area in front of the cliffs of the Storr is known as the Sanctuary. This has a number of weirdly shaped rock pinnacles, the remnants of ancient landslips.

    Legend has it that Old Man of Storr was a giant who had lived in Trotternish. When he died, he was buried with his finger left sticking o ut, creating the ridges.

    To get up to the Old Man, it is a constant climb. At first, the trail is wide and covered with gravel.

    Your reward, if he is not covered in mist, is coming eye to eye with the Old Man of Storr.

It is in a spectacular setting at the foot of Glen Oraid, sandwiched between impressive high cliffs, and with a huge sea stack and waterfalls to add to the scene. There is a wide sweep of sand below a bank of coarse shingle, though the available beach is much limited on high tides.

    The Misty Isle

    Moody, mist-shrouded mountains, snow-caked moorland, rushing burns and steely grey lochs: the Isle of Skye can be forbidding in winter. They can also be magical, a Narnia-style wonderland enchanting to explore

    Battered by wind and rain this black rocked mystical isle has a history of Celts Clansmen and Crofters. The Cuillin Hills dominate a rugged primeval landscape where the weather and light change from minute to minute.

    Colour Description: Fresh delicate grey with blue undertones

    The island was referred to by the Norse as Skuy (misty isle), Skýey or Skuyö (isle of cloud).

    The influence of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf Stream create a mild oceanic climate. Temperatures are generally cool, averaging 6.5°C

    Snow seldom lies at sea level and frosts are less frequent than on the mainland. Winds are a limiting factor for vegetation. South-westerlies are the most common In common with most islands of the west coast of Scotland, rainfall is generally high and the elevated Cuillin are wetter still giving rise to the name ‘The Misty Isle’.

    Trotternish Heather

    Trotternish or Tròndairnis is the northernmost peninsula of Skye.

    One of its more well-known features is the Trotternish landslip, a massive landslide that runs almost the full length of the peninsula, some 30 kilometres. The landslip contains two of Skye's most famous landmarks: the Old Man of Storr, an isolated rocky pinnacle, and the Quiraing, an area of dramatic and unusual rock formations. The summit of The Storr, on whose slopes the Old Man of Storr is located, is the highest point of the peninsula.

    Purple heather is also known as fine leaved heath and bell heather.  The purple heather is the first to flower (mid june) and grows on dry moorland and rocks throughout the island.

    In the old days it had many uses from tanning hides to thatching roofs and making brooms.
